Donald Trump has weighed in on the rumored romance of Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and made his own predictions of the alleged tryst.
The Republican candidate frontrunner congratulated the pair, but quickly predicted they may not last.
‘I wish the best for both of them. I hope they enjoy their life, maybe together, maybe not — most likely not,’ Trump said in a candid response during an interview with the Daily Caller.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Swift and Kelce have been spending time together under the radar for months before they were spotted together in public for the first time on Sunday as she attended a Kansas City Chiefs game.
Sources close to the couple claimed to TMZ on Monday that the two have hung out together ‘several times’ over the past few months.
Former President Donald Trump has weighed in on Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce ‘s supposed relationship
Taylor Swift, 33, was spotted spending time with her rumored new love interest, Travis Kelce ‘s mom, Donna Kelce, at the Kansas City Chiefs game last Sunday
‘If anyone should be worried about Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce, it’s Trump’, The Washington Post wrote in an op-ed.
‘These two have fan bases that are huge and devoted. Just from Swift attending that single Chiefs game, Kelce’s merchandise sales jumped 400 percent,’ columnist Rick Reilly wrote.
In one Instagram story last week, Swift urged her fans to exercise their democratic right to register and vote.
Her followers appeared to heed her advice with the number of users logging onto Vote.org skyrocketing 1,226 per cent in the course of an hour, Reilly noted.
He explained how Swift had a massive 450 million followers on X while Kelce also had a significant fanbase although ‘only 5 million.’
Reilly posed the question: ‘What if they decided a fun couples thing to do would be to … I don’t know … save democracy?’
The op-ed suggests that their diverse fanbase, many of whom could be potential Trump voters, the former U.S. President should give their relationship more thought.

Swift, an outspoken Democrat, has long been known for disapproving of Trump and was particularly vocal against him on Twitter during his presidency.
‘Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president,’ Swift wrote in a tweet.
Until then, Swift, had for much of her career, avoided speaking about politics, but slowly became more overt in her support for Democratic candidates and causes.
Years earlier she stated: ‘I’m not going to sit here and go into my political views,’ she said a few years ago, ‘because that’s not what I choose to do. I choose to do music.’
Once Trump was elected President, Swift was roundly abused by vicious trolls on social media for not attacking him in public.
She was branded a coward and a traitor, and a dog whistler for white supremacists with even mainstream media piling on, condemning her for her silence – before eventually bowing to pressure and calling him out.
Kelve recently took part in a 15-second commercial where cracked open a can of Bud Light after the recent scandal involving a trans TikToker that lost the beer’s parent company some $395 million in US sales
Kelce, meanwhile, has been blasted as ‘woke’ after his public support of Dylan Mulvaney post their Bud Light partnership.
After criticism, he took part in a 15-second commercial where he could be seen cracking open a can of Bud Light.
The ad, titled ‘Backyard Grunts with Travis Kelce,’ was labeled as another ‘desperate’ effort to regain support following plunging sales and faced criticism online, with the majority of comments claiming the brand was attempting to save face.
The advert looked to be an attempt to claw back male drinkers turned off by its recent marketing choices.
Kelce was pictured attending a BBQ with several other men, satirically grunting as they slowly recline in their seats and crack open beer.
At the time, Kelce’s appearance was met with backlash, with some commenters slamming him for being a ‘sell out’ after he’d shown support for Mulvaney.
Swift, meanwhile, became particularly vocal against Trump ahead of the 2020 election when she launched a blistering attack on the then-president accusing him of ‘dismantling’ the US Postal Service in an attempt to rig that November’s election.
Kelce and Swift’s relationship remains somewhat shrouded in mystery.
However Kelce has alluded to a romantic nature, revealing on his New Heights podcast in July that he had hoped to introduce himself to Taylor when he attended one of her Eras Tour stops.
‘I wanted to give Taylor Swift [a bracelet] with my number on it,’ the tight end shared, but he learned that the singer’s devotion to putting on the best performance possible made it impossible to chat with her.
Taylor amped up the budding courtship at Sunday’s game when she arrived alone — aside from her usual bodyguards — to cheer on Travis from a box.
However, the sources explained to the outlet that the Lavender Haze singer’s earlier meetings with the NFL star were in a ‘very private setting’ so as to not attract attention.
It appears that she’s moving toward a more open relationship with Kelce now, though sources also stressed that the two are not ‘officially’ dating, even though things appear to be heating up.
